HC Deb 11 November 1936 vol 317 cc861-2
43. Major PROCTER

asked the Minister of Transport whether he is in a position to report on the results of the experiments in the use of cotton-cloth for road making; and, in view of the importance to Lancashire of discovering new uses for cotton, will he specify cotton-cloth as one of the materials to be employed in new road construction?

The MINISTER of TRANSPORT (Mr. Hore-Belisha)

Results of experiments in this country and abroad do not, according to present information, justify me in specifying cotton-cloth for use on British roads.
